StrategyA competitive strategy is one that can have an edge over those attempting to do the sameessential business.With a competitive strategy, market researchcan show how much a customer is willing topay for a product, the competitor pricing, andthe value at which your company is set. Strengths of StrategyMarket research can provide the details needed to keep cost of product low, but pushprofit.Demand of the customer will show wherethey prefer to buy from.It is possible to beat the competition whenyou know a fair price, based off competitorpricing, and customer feedback. Weakness of StrategyThe belief is that the competitors will be in the same strategy field as us.When products are the same, preference isan edge that most customers lean towards.Changing price to stay ahead, can hurt in thelong run.Lower prices do no guarantee more sales. Quality ControlEnsuring that quality is pushed over quantity, means we care about the overall outcome ofour product.FDA regulations must be taken into accountfor all practices.Standard operating procedures will be inplace to provide how the product will bemade, and finished.Proper documentation will be enforced,therefore, ensuring the best resources whenthe potential for an audit is to happen. Quality Control Cont.Employeeâ€™s are expected to follow all regulations as laid out in workmanâ€™sagreement.Management and designee are responsiblefor ensuring (to the best of their ability) thatall procedures are to be followed.Quality Control is expected to be the finalinspection prior to release of product. ProcessWe start out process with the forming of the can, which is then covered in art work,designed specifically to the product being ranon the manufacturing line.The line then carries each container to thenest station for filling of the product. Again,this depends on the manufacturing code thatis being ran.The filled product, then moves to full sealing,so the product does not leak. Process Cont.Once the product is sealed, it then moves to the station in which it get packaged.The packaging is determined based on needand what product code is being ran. (Bottle,Can, 6 pack, 12 pack, 24 pack, or individual.)The product is then moved to shipping.From shipping, the product is moved to theorder site for distribution and sale.
